After Orlando: Supporting the LGBTQ Community

Did you know that LGBTQ people are the most likely targets of hate crimes in the USA? They are twice as likely to be targeted as African Americans and nearly a fifth of the 5,462 hate crimes reported to the FBI in 2014, were because of the target’s sexual orientation, or, in some cases, their perceived orientation. And we believe that that’s the tip of the iceberg because a lot of crimes against LGBT people, go unreported. This episode was recorded at the CBS Radio studios in New York, City just days after the mass shooting at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida. Jill invited back to the show several people who’ve been on GCH before to hear their reaction to this hate crime and ask them for their thoughts on how we can all play a role in supporting and protecting LGBTQ people. Dr. Frank Spinelli looked after patients during the AIDS crisis and tells us this crime makes him feel similarly helpless. He calls for meaningful gun control in the light of this tragedy. Dr. Maryanne Travaglione says she is heartbroken and explains the importance of gay bars and clubs as a safe space for to the LGBTQ community. Christopher Peacock was last on the show to talk about meeting the medical needs of transgender people. He returns to the show to talk about how this crime has affected the community he serves. Together the panel agrees that as society has become more tolerant, people who hate have become more polarized.
